Battle of the Buildings Bootcamp 2016 Banner

The ENERGY STAR® National Building Competition: BOOTCAMP was a competition that challenged building owners, managers, and occupants to reduce energy and water use, and save money over just 90 days!


Congratulations to all our competitors who spent 90 days slimming their energy and water “wastelines” by engaging employees, students, and other occupants in tackling energy and water waste together!

From September 1 through November 30, 2016, more than 200 organizations across the country entered 800+ buildings to compete in the 2016 National Building Competition: BOOTCAMP. Competitors worked to cut energy and water waste, one energy or water-saving action at a time.

Participants benchmarked their energy use (required) and water use (optional) in EPA’s ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager tool. Within each building type category, the building with the greatest verified weather normalized energy savings (or water savings) per square foot will take home top honors!

What's Next?

Competitors will submit their building data to EPA for review by January 15. EPA will announce the winner of the BOOTCAMP by April 2017. Stay tuned!
